We take taco Tuesday very serious in our house! You haven’t lived until you’ve tried a Coronarita at Casa Tequila! I think it’s safe to say they know me by my drink order!

“We drove from far away to sample the unique flavors offered on the menu. Sunday afternoons are the best and the service is friendly and courteous. The first time here, ordered the fried plantains, beef flautas and nopolita salad. All was delicious. The last time, we tried the enchiladas: espinacas and almendradas. Delicious again! We will definitely be back to try other items. A bonus is the artwork!” – Billy D.
